I haven’t been this blown away by a book since the Steig Larson trilogy.

Maybe it was because I don’t usually choose books in the fantasy/sci fi genre. Maybe my expectations were low, as they often are with self-published books (as pointed out in an earlier posting). Maybe I really wanted to be able to say something positive about an unknown writer’s work, since I’m in the same boat.

Or maybe it’s just an excellent read!

I was hooked from page one and found myself sneaking in an extra chapter when I should be getting back to work – and contemplating turning on my kindle and adjusting the print size to make it readable on my long drive home. (I didn’t.)

What I know was I was drawn to all of the characters as they were introduced. I mentioned before that it is not a genre that I normally would seek out, but the way the story unfolded made it all so believable! I actually forgot that it was fantasy.

You can purchase the book on Amazon. It’s the first of a series called The Synaxis Chronicles. I will look forward to the second book, Iona Stronghold. And check out Robert’s website. I’m certain we will be hearing more about him and his books.
